This instructor helped me have a better understanding of music. The teacher responded to all emails in a timely fashion. He answered all of my questions and he made me feel that he really cared about my progress in the course. The listening charts really helped me with the quizzes and the notes highlighted all of the relevant material that we were tested over. Although I have very little knowledge or care for music, the class has been informative. I really enjoyed this course. Great teacher! This class was very challenging but in the end I really started to understand most of the concepts. Thank you. Good online course to take. Very clear instructor. I enjoyed this online class. It was very sufficient. Great professor! I enjoyed the class I enjoyed taking this class and would like to take another one like it. Music is very important to me and is close to me. I grew up

singing in church choir and in the high school honor choir so it was really fun to think about music again. I liked being introduced to a wider spectrum of classical music that this course had on display Overall this course was great and the teacher did a great job of presenting the materials to the class. This is only my second on line class at GSW and I found the ability to study and test at convenient times really helps. Thanks for the opportunity to take this class online. Great teacher. I enjoyed taking this course! I enjoyed taking this course online. Before this class, I had no prior knowledge about the different fundamentals of music. This was excellent learning experience. I also like how there were guided listening charts available. This was my first online course ever, and I really enjoyed taking it. The course material was well explained and

test reflected the material. My problem was the restriction of testing time to two days only. I signed up for an online class because it was my understanding that they (online classes) afforded the opportunity for flexibility. That was my one and only problem. I found this class to be interesting. I didnt know anything about music until I took this course. Overall, I really enjoyed this class. It was a pleasure taking Music Appreciation from you! I really enjoyed participating in this class!!! awesome This course was very difficult for someone without any music background. It took much preparation before taking the tests. I enjoyed this class a lot. Thanks for making it fun! This course was very interesting. I like this class. The professor was willing to help whenever he needed to. Good and well developed lesson plans that the tests came straight from. GOOD JOB!! Thank you for your great teaching.

I particularly enjoyed the exposure to new and different styles of music. It is hard to grade an online instructor accurately. I found this course very stimulating and exciting this course has open up a new sound in my home.
